Individual vs corporation

If a corporation is considered to be individual then can the former be the latter? If so how does one apply for that status? I am looking for non political answers to my question. If you can' help yourself then post your political answer on the "other side". I promise not to look emoticon-animal-022

Sure, you can incorporate yourself (kap, inc.) and everything you own can be transferred to that corporation.

It seems like you should be able to do that, at this point though, what would be the difference? If corporations are people then people are corporations. The good news is that corporations can now be legally executed in Texas.

Please clarify your question. A corporation has always been considered a legal person; that's what the Latin root means. A person can also set up a small corporation, in which he's the only shareholder, to conduct certain types of business or hold property, so long as there is no intent to defraud. Your physician or dentist is probably "Dr. Sanjay Gupta, P.C." for exactly that reason, and your landlord may be "73 Wistful Vista L.L.C."

Our Bill of Rights was the result of tremendous efforts to institutionalize and protect the rights of human beings. It strengthened the premise of our Constitution: that the people are the root of all power and authority for government. This vision has made our Constitution and government a model emulated in many nations.

But corporate lawyers (acting as both attorneys and judges) subverted our Bill of Rights in the late 1800's by establishing the doctrine of "corporate personhood" -- the claim that corporations were intended to fully enjoy the legal status and protections created for human beings.

We believe that corporations are not persons and possess only the privileges we willfully grant them. Granting corporations the status of legal "persons" effectively rewrites the Constitution to serve corporate interests as though they were human interests. Ultimately, the doctrine of granting constitutional rights to corporations gives a thing illegitimate privilege and power that undermines our freedom and authority as citizens. While corporations are setting the agenda on issues in our Congress and courts, We the People are not; for we can never speak as loudly with our own voices as corporations can with the unlimited amplification of money.
